Reducing SWaP in ISR Signal Processing Applications

Start Date:7/22/2021

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


Military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) programs have put a premium on reducing size, weight, and power (SWaP) in their embedded signal processing systems. Everything is trending smaller. As a result military program managers are creating more stringent SWaP requirements for every system. Every advance in modern computing technology enables a footprint replacement of the previous version with as much as 10 times the performance, but also adds unique challenges for the military designer such as ruggedization and thermal management. While new small form factor (SFF) designs have helped meet these requirements at the board and system level, costly customization may still be necessary.

This webcast of industry experts will discuss reduced SWaP challenges, embedded computing solutions, SFF designs, and more.
